Sentencing rescheduled in embezzlement case

June 12, 2004

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Sentencing for the man found guilty of embezzling several thousand dollars from the Martinsburg-Berkeley County Boys & Girls Club was rescheduled Friday, after the man's attorney received permission to withdraw from the case.

In April, a jury found Glenn Edward Stanley, 39, of Baltimore, guilty of embezzling money and forging checks from the club.

Stanley used the money to buy two older sports cars, pay for repairs on those cars and his BMW, for rent and a security deposit, and to pay for his uncle's funeral, according to testimony during the trial. Altogether, the expenses totaled $6,898.

Before Circuit Judge Christopher Wilkes Friday morning, Stanley's attorney, Keith Wheaton, asked to be removed from case. He said he has not been able to meet with Stanley since the trial and that his attorney fees had not been paid.

Wilkes asked Stanley of his employment status. Stanley said he was fired from his last job after the trial, but has an interview today for a position as a Baltimore paramedic.

Wilkes rescheduled the sentencing hearing for July 16.
